Camping and RV'ing are the best ways to discover the beauty of the country, to meet like-minded people, and to connect with the nature and understand its significance in general.
But camping requires planning in advance: find your destination, make reservations for campgrounds, get maps, and buy the right gear and other supplies like food, medical kits, etc..
If considering remote and isolated destinations make sure to get informed about climate and weather aspects, road and hiking track conditions, water refilling stations, useful emergency equipment, wildlife species in the area, etc.
Preparation and planning is essential and determines if your trip will be a success or a total flop. Try to find out what type of camping person you and your companions are: how experienced are you and the others, are you seeking an adventure or more an moderate family camping trip with a certain comfort built-in?
If you're a camping newbie better get advice from friends, neighbors, and books. Start with easier-to-accomplish goals which makes you afterwards more satisfied and confident about your capabilities. Give yourself a chance to test your equipment which is always essential. Spending a night outdoor and having not the appropriate tent or sleeping bag is no fun at all - it's even dangerous for your health.
There are so many flavors of enjoying the outdoor, ranging from sleeping under the sky, in a tent, in a RV, or may be a cabin. What fits your taste the best can be only determined by yourself.
National Parks are among the most popular destinations. The National Park Service runs many campgrounds ranging from very simple (primitive) to fully equipped for RV's.
They have a Online Reservation System that lets you easily book a campground.
